Faculty members from five campuses gathered for a retreat in early September where they could work and collaborate with colleagues in a quiet setting.  The event was organized by Penn State York and sponsored through the campus, a teaching innovation grant from the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence, and Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) at University Park.  Some of the faculty members from the York campus who took part in the retreat included , left to right, Amber Seidel, associate professor of human development and family studies; Joan Smeltzer, assistant teaching professor in mathematics; Joy Giguere, assistant professor of history, seated;  and Nicole Muscanell, assistant professor of psychology.
